Hermit Crab Races

We've been a bit inspired by 5 Orange Potatoes to get outside. Actually Lisa inspires me pretty regularly πŸ™‚ I love visiting her blog. She recently wrote about the need to get our kids outside and her words really resonated with my inner nature fairy. Lots of bloggers are playing along and we're going to be posting "outdoor" photos several times a week over the next month.

Thanks Lisa!

And…… today our outdoor adventure we'd like to share is…..

Hermit crab racing.

It's a sport to build your patience πŸ™‚

And I assure you, no crabs were hurt in these races…..

See the hermit crabs lined up right in front of Miss 11's arm?

and they're off towards the water……

 Hope you have some time to race some crabs or something similar in your neck of the woods πŸ™‚

  1. That looks like so much fun! We used your great bag today to go foraging for fairy house supplies. I thought of you the whole way. Glad to see we are all getting outside. Enjoy!


  2. We did πŸ™‚ I wished we lived a little closer for more regular visits…. but in June we are headed to Alaska to visit Grandma and we’ll have a whole month of daily sea trips!
